Yes! I have a Computer Engineering degree from the University of Utah. It took me a lengthy 6 years to graduate. The final 2 years of school, I dropped to part time, so that I could work as a software engineer full time.
I learned to code through attending a University! I recommend this experience to anyone, if you have the time and means. I also suggest checking out codecademy which has great free resources.
